Workshop: Money Laundering and Drug Related Crimes

 

Chief Prosecutor's Office of Georgia requested to EU ACT Project to organise this Drugs money investigation workshop which will be held in Tbilisi, Georgia from 30th to 31st of January 2018.

Georgia operates a prosecutor-led system, where investigations are brought under the control of the Chief Prosecutor’s Office (CPO) at an early stage. This leading role is reflected across a number of Project activities aimed at pushing the entire law-enforcement effort to become more collaborative, better equipped, better-informed, and better led. 

The tackling of criminal finances, including the securing of evidence and the seizure of assets, is an underperforming area in Georgia.  Whilst many of the right structures exist, the knowledge and techniques required in order to have a significant impact are in need of improvement.

With this in mind, the CPO has asked for the Project to support a workshop examining the ‘money’ aspects of drugs investigations.  The target group for the workshop consists of those agencies with a responsibility for financial/criminal investigation.
